Here are some fresh ideas to keep your kids occupied in the garden. Get the little ones helping with some unusual tasks like picking fruit (if you have some!) or pulling the heads off dandelions and other weeds. Build a camp by draping an old sheet over a bush or some garden furniture. You're young ones will love to hide from you, and have their own 'house' to play in! Fill some buckets with water, grab some big decorating paint brushes and get them painting the (outside!) walls of your house, garden shed, garage or patio! Older children could try painting letters or numbers or shapes on the wall. Doing tasks like this - and using grown-up tools - is great fun for little ones and getting wet is always appealing for them too!
